Dr. John Christy participated in a conference on global warming last month, and presented some power points that make several points with respect to the ongoing climate debate.
Some of the slides show:
Tornadoes are not becoming more frequent.
Snow cover in the northern hemisphere, where the most plausible claims of warming have been made, is not diminishing.
In the U.S., the climate is getting neither wetter nor dryer.
High temperature records are not being set with unusual frequency.
The climate models that are the only basis for warming alarmism are refuted by observation, and therefore are simply wrong.
And, finally, even if the U.S. were to adopt unrealistically harsh measures to restrict carbon output by impoverishing Americans, the effect on the Earth’s climate–assuming the models are right–would be close to zero.

you dream ilap2004.. The effects of global warming are real. I do agree that there's too much need and greed for energy for mankind to do anything aggressive to stop it..
P.S. I guessing you don't have kids?
